One Thing Do I Seek
What are you seeking; wealth,a bigger house? There is nothing to compare with seeing the face of the Lord. When you seek first his kingdom; his way of doing and being right all things will be added unto you. When you seek the Lord it is easier to resist temptation; it transforms you. If you have invited Jesus into your heart and have been born again, the presence of God goes with you. However, there comes a time to get quiet, meditate and soak in his presence. Enter into this time by giving thanks unto the Lord; pray that the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart will be acceptable in his sight, asking the Holy Spirit to help you. You may sing praises to Him. Praise him for all of His marvelous deeds. Glory in His holy name. Seek, inquire of and for the Lord, and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His presence [continually] evermore. (Psalm 105:1-4).
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. LORD, I seek you with my whole heart, and desire to walk in your ways. I praise you today with uprightness of heart. With my whole heart I seek you; do not let me wander from your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O LORD! Teach me your statues, in the name of Jesus, I pray. You are a Rewarder of those who diligently seek you. Amen
